Crystallization Waterproofing Admixture

  • Cost effective
  • Maximizes waterproofness of concrete
  • Reduces water demand for a given slump
  • Inhibits cracking and shrinkage of concrete
  • Protects concrete against aggressive chemicals
  • Increases compressive strength of concrete
  • Non-toxic
  • Protects against chloride attack on reinforcing steel
  • Seals hairline cracks up to 0.5 mm
  • Cannot be damaged as it becomes an integral part of the concrete

MIXKOTE MIM provides a simple and effective solution for the waterproofing of new concrete construction. MIXKOTE MIM is a cementitious-based crystallization chemical powder compound used for the treatment of concrete and other materials containing Portland cement. MIXKOTE MIM is specially blended for use as an admixture at concrete batching plants. Its’ introduction into concrete premix reduces water permeability of the final poured concrete by formation of chemical crystals throughout the concrete mass when the chemicals contained in MIXKOTE MIM interact with concrete. MIXKOTE MIM provides protection against moisture, water pressure, certain aggressive chemicals and serves as a hardening as well as curing agent. MIXKOTE MIM also offers protection against the corrosion of reinforcing steel, concrete shrinkage cracks and frost damage.
